Not the nicest of hillscurlebd15/03/2020
As Jubilado. According to my GPS summit GR is in middle of messy field not far from pond. No sign of outcrop. Certainly not going back.russell6111/10/2019
On a mound by radio mast. Trig few hundred metres to the north is very precariousvegibagger01/07/2018
Parked at entrance to Selms Muir Wood and walked a bit back towards Kirknewton turning off along farm road. Through the shiny new gate past the strange habitation to 2 earth mounds. Return by same routeJubilado22/03/2018
from locked gate to the west early morning bag, 2 recent large earth mounds east of outcrop are several metres higher.robertphillips13/01/2018
Walk from Kirknewton station on minor road. Plenty of verge space to avoid heavy lorries from quarry. Strange summit. 1* On to Corston.Thearlaichdubh08/08/2017
Kirknewton-Selms Tops-Corston Hill-Auchinoon Hill-High Camilty-Livingston South station with Bert and Reg. Ignored limited signage trying to keep us out of work area roughly 500m WSW of the messy summit.campagvelocet20/09/2016
From SW, up track marked on 1:50K, but which is being'improved' - looks like serious road construction. Thankfully diggers all quiet. Agree with all the comments of Pete R., so won't repeat.Minto22/05/2015
Walked in from NE. Prefab 500m to NE visited, appears slightly lower as expected from map.RHW09/05/2015
Sundry Down style of top. Summit still there despite best efforts of mechanical diggers to extract stone.Adrian15/11/2014
I parked to the west, at NT082654. The track on the map doesn't exist all the way, but I followed the left of a fence which turned out not to require climbing. This hill is one for connoisseurs of scruffy farmyards. But does An Teallach offer a pond with ducks and geese, right next to the summit? Or passing trains that seem to be in the same field? Or views of the Pentlands, bings and Livingston? I think not.Pete R01/11/2014
Top is a complete mess and has been bulldozed. Someone is living in what looks like a couple of linked portacabins very close to the top.chrisbien31/08/2014
